‘A pretty good move’ – Arsenal backed to secure £45m statement Aston Villa transfer

Pundit Don Hutchison thinks Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish would be a good signing for Arsenal.

The Gunners were linked with a move for the 24-year-old earlier this week, with Sky Sports claiming they had registered an interest in signing Grealish.

However, further claims were made that Mikel Arteta’s side haven’t followed up their initial enquiry.

Grealish has been heavily linked with a move away from Villa and now that he has kept his side in the Premier League those rumours are starting to intensify.

Indeed, Manchester United continue to be linked with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side long-term admirers.

But United are already well-stocked in midfield and are looking to bring in Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.

And former Liverpool midfielder Hutchison thinks Arsenal could make a statement by signing Grealish for around £45m and then attracting other players to the Emirates Stadium because of that.

“I think it’s all about timing,” Hutchison told ESPN FC.

“The form of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba has probably swayed Ole to stick with those two, if Paul Pogba hangs around, so timing is probably not on Jack’s side to go somewhere like Man United.

“I think he’d be a good signing for them, obviously, Liverpool as well.

“I think Arsenal at this present time would be a very good move for him.

“Having said that, it just depends on who else Arsenal bring in.

“Because if they expect to bring in Jack Grealish for between £40-45m and expect Arsenal to get to the top four, it ain’t gonna happen.

“So, if Jack Grealish is a stepping stone in terms of they’re going to then attract better players in different positions I.e. centre-halves, then they have got a chance.

“I think for Jack it will be a pretty good move because they’re a footballing side.
